Yes, the rest of our patio weeds are geraniums and geums for the most part...

That's the bed that needs more perennials too. I wonder why they've not flowered the past 2 years, my weeding's not that efficient!

I was wondering if it was an aquilegia, I've eyed them up many a time in national trust shops and now they've turned up by themselves! Do they self seed readily? Sorry for the pic delay, the pic was on my phone and I couldn't seem to upload it from there.

Had this plant for a while but it's never flowered before, I have always assumed it's a weed.

Thanks! If they're still alive at the weekend I'll check the weather forecast then.

For those in the north of the UK, I know York's last frost date is some time in late May. Anyone have more precise info? I'm thinking of planting my patty pan squash out at the weekend if I've not just killed them. Thanks

Thanks for all the advice! The main things I divide are geraniums and ice plant, which we have like weeds.

Thanks for the tips! If you say September is best Verdun, would you leave it 'til this coming one or give it another year? I'm not desperate to do it, just starting to think. It's obviously in an ideal location, it's several times its original size. As you can see it's a substantial plant, I'm guessing it was a few years old when I bought it. It won't be that long before its size is causing issuies.
